The Slow, Gentle Continental Drift

I stayed because you were the only one who thought I could be better.

I stayed so that you could get better.

I stayed.

The Bottom Of The Dark

Everyone's got someone, deep in their lungs, that they need to breathe out, before they can sink.

Is that why you're trying to breathe me out, darling, while I'm still trying to breathe you in?

The Light Leaving Machines

I will record it, and when the time comes for me to die, I, or the nurse, will put the headphones in and I will hear:

"You have a name but soon you will not.
You loved everyone you could as much as you could.
You are only doing the most natural thing in the world.
Everything, is fine."

The Last Forgotten Light

The stars are God's silverware and you get to steal them every time you look at them.

But you still don't get as much as you think.

All you'll ever have is what you have.

Don't waste your stars, praying for a few more.
